Yorkshire Live’s Dom Howson believes Garry Monk should be given time to rebuild this Sheffield Wednesday team.
In his latest Q&A session, one Wednesdayite asked whether Monk will be the man in charge on the first day of the new season. Howson responded by saying the club should keep the 41-year-old at the hilt of the team for at the least the 2020/21 opener, in order to provide stability.
“There have been too many managerial changes in recent years,” the Yorkshire Live reporter wrote. “I appreciate they could do little about Steve Bruce leaving to take the Newcastle United job but I hope they give Monk the time, patience and resources to rebuild the team.
“There needs to be big change at Hillsborough and I can see Chansiri giving Monk the opportunity to reshape the squad this summer.”
Is Garry Monk the right man for Sheffield Wednesday?
Wednesday are currently 15th in the Championship table after succumbing to 15 losses throughout the season. Monk has come under a lot of scrutiny lately following his side’s recent poor run of form, but a successful transfer window could be just what he needs to get the Owls back on side.
As it stands, the Yorkshire outfit could be facing a mass exodus in the summer, as 12 senior players approach the ends of their contracts. Five more first team personnel will also be departing the club following the expiry of their loan deals.
If all or the vast majority of these players leave, it will be an alarming reality for Wednesdayites but it could be the making of Monk as manager. His summer business will surely be a make-or-break situation for his career at Hillsborough. If the gaffer can bring in some young talent and get the roster looking healthy again, Wednesday could have a shot at promotion next season.
However, if Monk fails to adequately replace those looking destined to leave, surely it will be curtains for the 41-year-old.
